It is through alumni like you that we have seen the true resilience of our community. With your support, THON 2022 raised $13, 756, 374.50! 

The 50th THON was a year that challenged and inspired us. Since 1973, THON has gone through a lot of changes, but the feeling of THON remains the same. This year, we sparked endless light and showed the world what cancer cannot do, and we thank you for your continued support of our mission.
